Rocky Head and Oddbins No 5 Saison

rocky head saison

This is the latest in the range of collaborative beers by Rocky Head and retailer Oddbins. It’s really good. The idea was to make the ultimate summer beer, and I think they’ve achieved it. Brewer Steve Daniel is a former Buyer for Oddbins, which is where he made his name. The brewery is based in Southfields, near Wimbledon.

Rocky Head Brewery and Oddbins No 5 Saison
4.8% alcohol
With added lemongrass, mandarin zest, passion fruit and coriander seed. Yellow in colour with nice fresh citrussy fruit and some herby notes, together with a hint of earthiness on the finish. Bright and zesty with fresh, fruity, slightly spicy aromas and flavours. Very satisfying. 8/10
